Summary0008012: sslstrip fails to resolve target website
I am using the latest package available in Kali (1.0+git20211125.9ac747b-0kali1) and when I run it it gives errors similar to this one in the sslstrip.log file:
2022-10-16 19:09:01,267 Resolving host:
2022-10-16 19:09:01,267 Host not cached.
2022-10-16 19:09:01,296 Resolved host successfully: ->
2022-10-16 19:09:01,296 Host resolution error: [Failure instance: Traceback: <class 'TypeError'>: argument should be integer or bytes-like object, not 'str'
--- <exception caught here> ---

It seems to do this for any host.
If you need more information please just ask.
Take care,
Steps To ReproduceI am simply following the instructions in the file.

Looks like Kali switched to a python3 compatible fork available at:

Better create a new issue about this error in the hope to get this fixed.
